Today I had to accept that I’m doing more than enough. In life, so many
people will project their insecurities on you, on me on whoever is closest to
them. It’s usually unintentional which means I’m also someone who does this. In
a culture where overworking is rewarded with empty hearts and mediocre bank
accounts, you gotta know your priorities. Plus, you gotta show up with your
boundaries and your courage and you gotta be intentional about saving your
energy for the things that are most important to you. Work is important because
it pays your bills but for me, my loved ones are more important than a
paycheck. On the other hand, the monetary reward for my hard work is nice,
because it allows me to love my loved ones in many ways including giving me the
freedom to love myself. Finding a job where your priorities can be respected
can be life-changing.
To return to where I started, I got to accept that I’m doing enough. I had a
hard time Friday evening because I’m pretty sure this is the first year, I
could not properly celebrate Veterans Day with my partner. And celebrating him
is one of my most favorite things to do in our marriage. I still got him
something and we went to dinner, but I was so wiped out by the time it was
dinner that I couldn’t fully enjoy my time with him. I did my best and I showed
I cared. I need to accept that.
The relationship you have with your priorities will change along with you.
Adjust. Show up. Use your words and do your best. and remember
I Think You’re Great!
Wanna see the post that came up and reminded me to be gentle on myself ?
